| From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: DOXA (H. Sass '29) E 24" (Unknown). This variety has an Aril look and is usually considered as belonging in this group, although as far as we know there is no definite proof of its Onco make-up. The olive-yellow flowers which have shadings of green and lavender are strange and interesting rather than beautiful. It is the seed parent of 'Mohresque' and possibly useful in a 'green' breeding program. H.M.'28 $.60
